Domestic water shut down for B-Wing in Duncan McArthur Hall on Tuesday morning

A domestic water shutdown is planned for B-Wing in Duncan McArthur Hall on Tuesday, Feb. 13 between 8 am and noon to permit Physical Plant Services to connect domestic water for the new sinks in the Tech Wing room B157.

During the shutdown period, there will not be domestic hot or cold water for flushing toilets, hand washing, safety showers, eye wash stations or kitchen use, etc. Building occupants and visitors should be directed to washrooms in A-Wing while work is in progress.

Note: There may be discolouration or air in your water when a tap is first opened following the service interruption. This is quite normal and is an aesthetic problem only; it does not present a safety concern. Run your water for several minutes before using it and the problem should quickly remedy itself. It is best to perform this initial flushing at a tap that is not equipped with a mesh strainer in order to avoid a possible fouling of the strainer.
